Murwillumbah Seed Library

The aim of the Seed Library is to promote a sense of community sharing, involvement and self-sufficiency. The library has a collection of seeds available to "borrow"; there is no cost to the borrower and the seeds are locally sustainable. So, how does it work? 1. You select your seeds packets and bring them to the desk to "borrow" them. 2. You plant them, grow them and harvest what you need, letting some of it go to seed. You keep some seeds for yourself, and return some to the library. 3. The library then packages it up ready for someone else to "borrow". It's that simple! For more information phone Murwillumbah Library on (02) 6670 2427.
